  • Set "UDP" to "1"
    Hint: If you experience telemetry lag, please try "4" instead.

  • Click "Back"

Project CARS 1

The RS Dash app should now be showing the dashboards once you have left the settings page.

Hint: In the RS Dash setting there is a "Legacy NetCode" option which can help reduce lag on some devices. If you enable this option you should also set your Project CARS 1 UDP setting to 4 for the best results.

IMPORTANT: Project CARS 1 only supports outputting its UDP telemetry as a global network broadcast on UDP port 5606. This means it will work with multiple devices by default, however please be aware that some Android devices and some wireless routers will have trouble processing the telemetry when it is sent this way. This can result in telemetry lag or possibly even no telemetry at all (in rare cases). If you are experiencing lag issues, please check your router settings and try disabling settings such as "UDP Flood Protection", "DOS (Denial of Service) Protection", "Multicast Flood Protection" or similarly named. Lag issues can also sometimes be resolved by slowing down the UDP rate, try using UDP 4 in the game and enabling the "Legacy Netcode" option in RS Dash if you are experiencing telemetry lag to see if that helps.
